  • Last two days caught up with me today. Shoulders and back are sore and I am thanking the Lord that I do not do concrete work for a living. Hat's off to anyone who does. That is not easy work.

    But still managed to get a few things done. Lower temperatures have arrived, so this morning I changed the beds over to the flannel sheet sets (mmmm...if you have never experienced cotton flannel sheets and live where winter is chilly, I highly recommend them. They are the definition of comfy!). Went through the cupboards and freezer to make up a grocery list for my bi-weekly trip to the market. And even managed to set up a nice chicken soup for dinner tonight, along with some grilled ham and cheese sandwiches.

    Somewhere in there I remembered to do my aerobics workout, 32 minutes on the Gazelle while listening to Enya. When I am getting on the Gazelle, I am usually wearing a sweatshirt along with a headband (I am one of those guys who sweats profusely from his forehead and like to avoid salt in my eyes), and a light towel wrapped around the inside collar of the sweatshirt to keep the heat in. When listening to mellow tunes, I usually set up a march pace in my head (Hup, 2, 3, 4) and just maintain it for the duration. After the first 5 minutes, I am perspiring.

    Which is the point of aerobic exercise, isn't it.

    I hope you are having a blessed day.
